This cowl is knitted seamlessly in the round, starting with a provisional cast-on. When the cowl is complete, it is joined to form a continuous loop by using Kitchener stitch to graft the two ends together. Because the wrong side of the fabric will be entirely hidden on the inside of the seamed tube, it is important to weave in and secure your ends before the grafting is completed. One section of the cowl is made up of a stranded colourwork pattern. Because many people find that their stranded knitting is tighter than their knitting with one colour, we recommend going up one needle size in order to keep your tension consistent. If you find that your stranded work is very tight, you may need to go up more than one needle size for this section.
